* BaseBreaker:
** Ashur and Wernher from ''The Pitt''. Due to the GreyAndGrayMorality of the DLC, the fandom is noticeably split between which one should be considered the ''real'' hero and villain of the story, while some consider ''both'' men to be bad people and differ on who is the ''[[LesserOfTwoEvils least]]'' evil option.

** [[spoiler:Autumn]], despite being the FinalBoss, can be killed with one clean critical to the head, and the two bodyguards nearby are just the same Enclave troopers you've been gunning down all game. You can even talk your way to victory if your Speech skill is high enough. No bloodshed needed.

No bloodshed needed.[[note]]You may need to load the save before it a few times as you only have a 60% chance at convincing him due to how the Speech skill works.[[/note]]

** A BlackComedy version, Mister Lopez in Rivet City is contemplating suicide. If the player agrees to help him, he's flung backwards off the flight deck with the implication you push him. However, he's flung directly away from the player, not off the deck, so if you talk to him from the side, this results in him getting thrown backwards on the balcony, somehow dead from nothing.

*** It could also be said that she is misblamed. Since Amata is now the ''de faco'' Overseer, if not ''de jure'', she has to keep the tenuous peace the Vault now has from breaking out into another war and killing everyone in the Vault. To do so she has to kick out her best friend for years because the other Dwellers blame ''you'' for sending the Vault into chaos and won't enjoy having you back. If anyone's the asshole here, it's the other Vault Dwellers for choosing you to be their scapegoat as your father isn't around anymore to be the target of their hate.

** Alistair Tenpenny seems to have a bit of this treatment going on as well; while he's perhaps not quite the CompleteMonster his minion Mr. Burke is, he still shoots people from the top of a skyscraper for fun, he's still a complete bigot, and the fact that killing him nets good Karma (one of the few occasions where this happens) suggests that even if he's now just a slightly senile old man (which is how he's generally viewed in this treatment), he's been responsible for some pretty nasty stuff in his life.

** Special not goes to The Roach King. Literally in the middle of no where, he sits on a throne made of random junk, while wielding a mini-gun, surrounded by his "army" of Rad Roaches. Since he and by extension his roaches attack you on sight [[note]] Though since much stronger enemies spawn in that area, he may be dead when you find him. [[/note]], there is no way of figuring out ''anything'' about him.

* FanficFuel: [[VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}} The sequel]] to ''3'' takes place almost ten years after the events of the game, and we only get a precious few details about what exactly happened immediately after the events of the game, the fate and current whereabouts of many characters (most importantly, that of the Lone Wanderer) or what's going on in the Capital Wasteland right now, beyond the strong implication that the Eastern Brotherhood of Steel now control the region as a sort of technocratic/neo-feudal [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/State_of_the_Teutonic_Order Ordensstaat]]. Naturally, fan-fiction writers have found the murky circumstances an absolute ''goldmine'' for stories and speculation.

*** ''The Pitt'' has the Infiltrator, a silenced machine gun with a scope, and it's not a unique weapon. It has an even more powerful version of itself called the Perforator. With this and the stealth suit, you can breeze through the game without ever being seen.

With this and the stealth suit, you can breeze through the game without ever being seen. It also has the Metal Blaster, a laser rifle with a shotgun spread; due to the game giving each beam a separate critical hit chance, with the right build the weapon will deal absurd damage at close-to-medium range.

** The appearance of Mr. Burke in the Lone Wanderer's drug induced hallucination can be taken to mean a variety of things depending the on the Wanderer's actions, specifically whether [[spoiler:you destroyed Megaton or not]].

* TakeThatScrappy: The game freely allows the player to perform this on the Scrappies mentioned above. Many a player ends Sticky's quest by [[CrossesTheLineTwice exploding his skull with a power fist than nuking his corpse]]. Also [[spoiler:it's all but explicitly said that the kids from Little Lamplight [[BlackComedy are unknowingly cannibals]] and the player can make some nasty cracks towards them to make feel like crap]].
